Dual CoreXY kinematics?

Happy user here, with a working Hybrid-CoreXY setup, using mainline Klipper, for many months:

Now, I’m looking at trying something fundamentally different to get two carriages, though: two parallel CoreXY gantries. But the [dual_carriage] option seems IDEX-specific, vs Dual CoreXY.

Does anyone have any pointers to something the exists in this direction w/Klipper? If not… any sense for the amount of work this would require?

There’s some related stuff, but I couldn’t find anything.

Something more than “see docs/Code_Overview.md” is what I’m hoping for.

It seems like Duet2+Duex5 already support this setup, but I’d rather stick with Klipper if possible, for CAN toolhead support and general affordability.

Replying to my own thread, since nobody replied originally:

I’ve released a full open-source design for a Dual CoreXY printer, called Dueling Zero.

It prints, and with Tircown’s help I was able to get a proper Klipper implementation working.

Looks great, will join the discussion as I’m planning to implement the same kinematics to a VzBoT 330 style printer.

As long there is no other solution actually for IDEX on CoreXY, it is a good alternative. Especially because you have more usable space on the X axis…

What do you mean “no other solution”? IDEX via hybrid-corexy has worked fine on Klipper, out of the box, for a long time.
